Tucked inside the back corner of a Margate strip mall alongside State
Road 7 is O'Malley's Sports Bar & Grill. Pool tables and electronic
punching games greet patrons at the door, inviting them in for a round
of drunken competition. From flat-screen TVs to fluorescent beer signs and sports memorabilia, this bar has all the expected trimmings. Scantily clad waitresses serve locals from behind a circular exposed-brick bar, while the shot girls tempt the crowd to partake in some risque drinking fun. More often than not, the bartenders can be found keeping the stripper pole warm during one of the live bands. Although the interior looks like that of a typical sports haven, the O'Malley's drunkards are more likely to be at a Metallica show than a Dolphins game.
